‘After Director Comey dismantled every bit of Secretary Clinton’s explanation about her private email server that she’s been telling the American people over the last couple of years, I think the most important thing the Department of Justice could do, the most important thing the FBI could do, and the most important thing that she could do would be to make sure that all of the investigation by the Department of Justice and the FBI be made public.’

‘Director Comey talked about the importance of transparency in this highly unusual case, and only when we get the complete investigation out, including that three-and-a-half hour interview with the FBI, will the American people have the information they need in order to make a final judgement.’

WASHINGTON – Today at a Senate Republican press conference, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) called on the Department of Justice to release the report from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s interview with the FBI and other evidence from the investigation into her use of an unsecured personal email server. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video of his speech can be found here.

“After Director Comey dismantled every bit of Secretary Clinton’s explanation about her private email server that she’s been telling the American people over the last couple of years, I think the most important thing the Department of Justice could do, the most important thing the FBI could do, and the most important thing that she could do would be to make sure that all of the investigation by the Department of Justice and the FBI be made public.” 

“While we know it’s not a crime to lie to the American people, it is a crime to lie to the FBI during the course of an investigation. And I believe if she wants to begin to recover her shredded reputation, it’s important to get the facts out before the American people. Director Comey talked about the importance of transparency in this highly unusual case, and only when we get the complete investigation out, including that three-and-a-half hour interview with the FBI, will the American people have the information they need in order to make a final judgement.”
